FlashMAX PCIe SSD

FlashMAX PCIe SSD

4800GB, 2200GB & 1100GB
Enterprise MLC PCIe
Solid-State Drives

  • Application Acceleration – Up to 531K IOPS in a low-profile form factor
  • High Capacity – Up to 4.8TB in a single HH-HL extension card
  • Low Latency – DRAM-like performance for write latencies

Delivering consistent and high performance acceleration across a wide variety of workloads, FlashMAX® PCIe SSDs tightly integrate different kinds of Flash media, hardware and software to deliver performance without compromise. FlashMAX SSDs are offered in HDD-like capacities up to 4.8TB in a very compact, universal form factor, making them ideal for space constrained environments. In addition, 100% of the capacity available on a FlashMAX card is available as a single host volume on the server without having to leverage 3rd party software RAID products to stripe across multiple drives.
